The Kerrville Fire/EMS was on scene furnishing medical aid to the victim, who was transported to Peterson Regional Medical Center and subsequently died from his injury.
The suspect, who returned to the scene shortly after, was identified and determined to be a 15 year old male juvenile. The suspect was detained and subsequently transported to the Kerr County Juvenile Detention Center. The juvenile suspect remains at the detention center pending his appearance before a magistrate in a Juvenile Hearing, for the charge of Murder.
